    Free Dance, Results and Thoughts

    1. Do we have a new rivalry? 0.04 separating gold from silver!!!!!!

    2. Good for the Parsons, and they kept pace as well (less than a point off of gold)

    EIGHTH IN THE FD

    Rebecka Kim & Kirill Minov KOR

    FD Midnight in Moscow by The Scorpions

    They are coached by Irina Zhuk & Alexander Svinin who also do their choreography Rebecka is 14 &Kirill's 19.
    I think you will see this team rise in the ranks.

    Their base value of 32.70 is 3rd highest, behind Parsons at 36.20, Zenkova at 34.7, and ahead of kosigina at 31.70

    TES 34.49 qualifies them for jr worlds & 4cc's
    SD 22.64 also

    They just need more speed
    she has great flexibility
    quick turns on the twizzles
    his position in the dance spin is awkward
    and they recentered rather far away
    the first lift is interesting and has transitions that go with the music
    simple rotational lift
    a little awkward in final pose



    FiFTH IN THE FD--AND BENT/ MACKEEN BETTER WATCH OUT

    Melinda Meng & Andrew Meng CAN
    FD MicMacs à tire-larigot, ('Non-stop shenanigans'). The film is billed as a "satire on the world arms trade".[French movie soundtrack) They are street people

    Melinda & Andrew are just moving up to the Junior division, and had not competed internationally as of January 2, 2012.. Melinda is 15, and Andrew is 16.
    Their coaches are Marie-France Dubreuil, Patrice Lauzon, & Pascal Denis. Their choreographers are Marie-France Dubreuil, Patrice Lauzon, & Milena Todaro.
    The Mengs competed in Novices at Canadian Nationals in 2012, where they finished second.. There is a nice photo of them on the first page:

    start with a bow
    terrible dust rag (maybe kitchen sink net scrubbie) of a skirt on her with far too many colors of nylon net layered
    appears to be about some kind of stage dancer
    fairly typical rotational lift with hair cutter action
    very smooth footwork
    more french accordion music
    pulls her between his legs in a very labored way

    he has red suspenders hat, striped shirt
    spin is ok
    entrance to rotational lift a hair off
    piggyback lift does not appeal

    66.17

    Combination rotational lift to start LOVED by judges
    spin level 3 only
    final rotational lift only level 1 but judges liked it




    Seventh in the FD
    Karina Uzorova & Ilias Ali KAZ
    FD Live for the One I have; The Age of the Cathedrals; The Refugees (all from Notre Dame de Paris) by Richard Cocciante
    They are coached by Kuralai Uzurova, & Maia Usova. Their choreographer is Maia Usova. Ilias is almost 18, and Karina is 15.
    .
    They are the Senior Ice Dance champions of Kazakhstan. start with a spin good speed in it
    wiggly in the steps
    peculiar lift where she just hands up as though she should keeep going but she doesn't
    lots of jumps in the next part into a step sequencce
    lift
    first 2 sets of twizzles out of synch last set nice
    64.35 PB


    Ninth in the FD
    Celia Robledo & Luis Fenero ESP
    FD Chicago (soundtrack)
    Their coaches are Muriel Zazoui, R. Haguenauer, & Olivier Schoenfelder
    Their choreographer is Romain Haguenauer.
    They are the current Spanish National Junior Champions.
    starts with "Ladies & Gentlemen!!!"
    nice shoot the duck by Luis while Celia holds his hand
    I like this entry to the lift-she ends up upside on his foot
    splits as part of the steps
    twizzles second set really anemic
    circular step is stumbly to "isn't it fun"...but it isn't
    spin to the more Charlestony music
    really suits the music here
    a lift that looks mostly like him throwing her around his neck


    62.03 overall PB

    TENTH IN THE FD
    Anna Nagornyuk & Viktor Kovalenko UZB

    FD Me Voy by Jasmin Levy; Flamenco


    Their coaches are Svetlana Alexeeva & Olga Riabinina, and their choreographer is Elena Kustarova. Anna is 16, and Viktor is 20.
    Their best ever score was 114.98 at JGP Tallinn last year, where they placed sixth. They are the senior champions from Uzbekistan

    They do the Latin & guitar thingie with her in the tango dress
    black lace over red
    castanets
    smooth curve lift with him gliding backwards on one foot
    little running steps without edges to start the footwork
    spin he is particularly awkard & in the 2nd set just kind of drifts around in a circle rather than a centered spin

    Into flamenco
    twizzles oh dear. she stumbles badly and he stumbles to get out of her way. ick
    level 2 hand clapping into another throwing her around lift
    this program needs work
    fast foottapping and they have lost all semblance of keeping up with it. Final lift of the throwing her around variety.

    tanked 60.92




    Warm-Up Group 4
    THIRD IN THE FD (BUT NOT BY MUCH)
    Rachel Parsons & Michael Parsons USA
    FD Walpurgis Night Faust Three Nymphs by Charles Gounod
    Rachel is 14, and Michael is 16.

    His in the requisite black rag suit for a demon
    She's in unlucky green with a rag skirt
    they are so much smoother than earlier in the season
    long rotational lift, rotations could be quicker
    he's in a lunge, she's standing on his foot in a Biellmann
    very nice twizzles all 3 sets, audience can be heard applauding
    man is the arena empty
    step sequence
    there is still something klutzy about her leg extensions
    nice layback over his leg while he's in a lunge
    spin to frantic music
    nice
    this appears to be nice girl & demon
    final rotational lift. The jouncing up and down maybe intentional but it doesn't look so.
    77.74 PB


    best thing the opening level 3 step; circular step also level 3


    SECOND IN THE FD
    Evgenia Kosigina & Nikolai Moroshkin RUS

    FD Michael Jackson Medley
    Evgenia & Nikolai are coached by the team of Gorshkov & Shpilband. Their choreographer is Victor Kanevski.
    Next time, get Shpilband to do the choreo too. This program is dreck

    already the cuts are bad
    thriller
    fast steps not quite matching
    another sandbag rotational lift
    they almost crash in the last twizzle set. He seems a little off axis throughout, (why does this seem to be a problem with pri marily male ice dancers???)
    step to drums
    step onto his foot, hold leg in split lift. too obvious how they get into it
    not thriller any more
    spin
    ragged second bit OK
    this bit is good steps (but not a sequence, I think)
    curved lift with a really big arc nice
    final lift choreographic. just ok

    Judge 7 also loves this team (but not as much as Z&S) 2's
    level 1 &2 on steps, the difference

    highlight the first lift


    77.89

    FIRST IN THE FD
    Valeria Zenkova & Valerie Sinitsin RUS
    FD Cats (musical) by A. L. Webber
    They are coached by Alexander Zhulin & Oleg Volkov. Their choreographers are Alexander Zhulin & Sergei Petukhov.
    Valeria is 17, and Valerie is 20.


    every junior dancer's nightmare ---skating to Cats
    this spin drifts
    the entrance to the twizzles is very neat, from forward to back with leg up forward
    1:00 minute mark
    smoother getting into their lifts and out than K&M
    their positions in lifts in general are more defined than K&M
    final step
    Another sling her around like a sandbag lift
    then into neat back lift-I want to see that one again


    80.21, and into 1st, and into the JGPF.
    level 4 except steps 2 &3
    judges liked the opening spin. Judge 7 ADORES this team 3's? (A little excessive there)

    FOURTH IN THE FD

    Mackenzie Bent & Garrett McKeen CAN
    Their programs:

    FD Misterio Y Fuego performed by Ensemble Vivant
    Mackenzie is 15, and Garrett is 18.
    Their coaches and choreographers are Carol and Jon Lane, and Juris Razgulajevs


    jump twizzles ok
    tango ish program, I guess
    lots of lungy moves
    carol lane recycles R&H tango???
    blonde kitten girls should not do tango
    spin to very slow music went a bit to pieces at the end
    piano music tango ?
    hydroblade haircutter lift
    back to regular tango
    more lunges, way too many in this program
    up and down rotational lift she touches down, and they go up again in a lift and one has to ask, was that intentional or not.
    *ETA* it wasn't, and they got level 1 for the final rotational lift, and for the circular step just preceding it., and for the diagonal step
    Killed by the callers

    66.67 into 4th

    SIXTH IN THE FD
    Alexandra Nazarova & Maxim Nikitin UKR

    FD Gopher Mambo; Habanera; Malambo
    Their coaches are Galina Churilova and Mariana Kozlova. Their choreographer is Larisa Fiodorova.
    Alexandra is 15, and Maxim is 17.
    They have rather different hobbies. Alexandra likes sky diving & swimming, while Maxim collects insects.

    T
    64.93 into 6th

    He's in white, she's in a little red dress with ruffles on the chest
    Low lift he's in an extreme hydroblade, she's stretched out parallel to the ice like a plank. OK!
    steps-twizzly bits good, but some bad edges
    level 2 at best
    She's cantilevered out from his shoulder, uncomplex effetive lift
    spin
    sack of sand rotational lift
    there's been alot of those this event
    she falls doing nothing, basically, in a transition to a step
    twizzles 3 sets nicely done
    choreographic lift kind of anemic,
    pair cantilever like spoons to end. OK I like this bit.

    They also got dinged for an extra element. the 3rd lift was deemed a curve rather than a straight line lift, and so was an extra element -no score and -1.
    And got -1.43 goe on the level 2 circular step that ended in a fall.

    Definitely Stepanova & Bukin make it, if they don't get the stomach flu and withdraw at Chemnitz.

    http://www.isuresults.com/events/jgp2012/jgpsdance.htm

    The final will consist of the top five teams (Aldridge/Eaton, Papadakis/Cizeron, Zenkova/Sinitsin, Kosignia/Moroshkin, Yanovskaya/Mozgov) and presumably Stepanova/Bukin.

    why Yanovskaia/Mozgov ? Koch/Nuchtern have higher score, I would assume if they win silver again
    in Germany hey will qualify ahead of Y/M they win the tiebreaker

    They are not listed as competing in Germany. Where did you hear that they will be at this competition? Besides I don't think they can compete in more than two events anyway.
